The Importance Of Hiring A Good Divorce Lawyer
Do you need a divorce lawyer? Many people think hiring a lawyer automatically escalates a divorce to a new level of conflict. In fact, a skilled attorney can reduce conflict, providing you with relevant options and guiding you to an amicable resolution while protecting your rights.
The cost of not hiring a lawyer can be enormous. Errors and oversights in the divorce process can come back to haunt you. Doing it right the first time is far less expensive and troublesome than trying to fix a botched divorce.
Attorney Fees In Minnesota Divorces
In Minnesota, courts have the authority to award attorney fees to a divorcing party under certain circumstances. There are need-based and conduct-based attorney fee awards, and they can be ordered at any point during the divorce process. Need-based awards are based on the receiving party’s ability to pay for legal services. Conduct-based fees are awarded when one party unreasonably contributes to the length or expense of the proceeding, such as when the party files frivolous motions, fails to exchange documents or ignores court orders.
